  • Terroir

    Appellation:Chablis produces exclusively white wines. The unique basements provide the wines with freshness, purity and typical mineral and iodine notes.

    Did you know ?
    Côte de Léchet would come from the Latin verb «Laxicare» meaning «to let go». Would the Coast have been abandoned for several years? Although several hypotheses exist as to the origin of the name of the climate, the place called «Côte Lâche» located in Chichée, a few kilometres from Chablis, would confirm this theory.

    Soil: Grey marls alternating with limestone banks sometimes very rich in fossils

  • Varietals

    100% Chardonnay

  • Vinification

    Harvest: The grapes are cut and sorted by hand.
